Ever tried aerial or acro yoga? Or a class where chants are replaced with hip-hop or a live acoustic guitar? You’ll find these and more at Love Yoga Fest on August 15-17 when Hyannis’ Aselton Park will become a vibrant yoga village with hundreds of wellness seekers from near and far coming together to move, meditate, sing and stretch.
All of us at LoveLiveLocal are passionate about yoga’s many benefits, so when former Centerville Yoga & Wellness founder Annika Iliadis approached us about creating Cape Cod’s first yoga event of its kind, it was a natural fit. Our mission is to create a fun, safe and healthy environment in which anyone at any level can expand their yoga practice and, in the process, cultivate kindness and awareness in our community.
Love Yoga Fest (LYF) features a top-notch schedule of over 40 classes led by more than 30 teachers from partner studios like Power Yoga of Cape Cod, Centerville Yoga & Wellness, Orleans Yoga + Pilates, Innerglow, Village Yoga, Heels Over Head, Kind Yoga, Dharma Connection, The Yoga Room, and others from throughout the South Coast. Internationally known performers MC YOGI, DJ Drez, Amanda Giacomini and Wade Imre Morissette will round things out with their unique and sought-after style.
The weekend also includes morning meditations with Sounding Still Wellness, a LYF Marketplace featuring a curated set of yoga and wellness vendors and practitioners. For those who purchase weekend passes, there’s a welcome party at the Cape Cod Maritime Museum to benefit Calmer Choice with snacks and refreshments from Whole Foods, KeVita and the Cape Cod Package Store. DJ Sinnetti and Cape Cod African Dance & Drum will set the mood.
We are proud to be partnering with two local organizations to raise awareness of their services –Calmer Choice, which promotes mindfulness practices in schools, and Yoga Neighborhood, which offers free classes to underserved populations on the Cape, including veterans and the disabled. And, several community classes will be available at lunch each day.
Join us! Pick up a weekend or day pass, and preview the fun at our summer kick-off event at Power Yoga of Cape Cod on July 11 – a DJ’ed vinyasa class followed by a dance party with raffles, prizes and LYF incentives!
